Assisted Research Afternoon at the L.A. FamilySearch Library (LAFSL)

The Los Angeles FamilySearch Library (LAFSL) is located at 1591 E Temple Way, West Los Angeles, on the grounds of the LDS Temple. Parking is free.

Experienced JGSCV members and FamilySearch Library volunteers will be available to help members get the most out of the L.A. FamilySearch Library's (LAFSL) resources, including computer assistance with many popular genealogical databases including FindMyPast,, MyHeritage (Library edition), ProQuest Obituaries, World Vital Records, and more! The LAFSL has many computers so everyone can use them simultaneously. In addition, there are Jewish microfilms of Eastern Europe and a selection of others, including maps and gazetteers. Bring your research documents with you and bring a flash drive if you want to download electronic images of online images. Hard copying is also available. Our sister JGS, JGSLA's library is available for research at the LAFSL.
